We’re proud to announce the developer release of Portia, our new open source visual scraping tool based on Scrapy. Check out this video:
As you can see, Portia allows you to visually configure what’s crawled and extracted in a very natural way. It provides immediate feedback, making the process of creating web scrapers quicker and easier than ever before!
Portia is available to developers on github. We plan to offer a hosted version on Scrapinghub soon, which will be compatible with Autoscraping and fully integrated with our platform.
